Industry-changing technologies announced for edie Innovation Zone

edie is delighted to announce the emerging technologies that will be on show in the brand new edie Innovation Zone at Sustainability Live next month (April 21-23 at the NEC, Birmingham).

The edie Innovation Zone, supported by the Knowledge Transfer Network, brings together pre-commercialised technologies currently in development or trial stages, to create a vibrant focal point for collaboration, learning, demonstrations and networking at Sustainability Live 2015.

The selected technologies – which range from generating energy from ‘rubbish’ plastic bags to mass-market rainwater harvesters – were selected by an independent steering committee, following a call for posters, and will be presented in a dedicated area of the exhibition.

The successful technologies, announced today, are:

Warwick FBR: Solving the waste plastic crisis
iViTi AdrON: Balancing stress to the grid during peak energy periods
Hydromentum Systems: Cost-effective rainwater harvesting and flood prevention
TurboClaw: Capturing the energy in steam
P Sensor: Preventing phosphate pollution episodes and enabling phosphorus resource recovery
Topolytics: Mapping the power of waste
Novagg: Creating building supplies from landfill

Amanda Barnes, chief executive at Sustainability Live organiser Faversham House, said: “We are delighted to recognise and showcase some of the truly cutting-edge technologies that are about to enter the sustainability market.

“These pre-commercialised products are the result of countless hours of research and development from teams across the country and we believe this shortlist has true potential to change the industry. The Innovation Zone is just one of a wide range of educational and free-to-attend show features that visitors can access at the event this April.”
